José Suris IV is a Brooklyn-based artist and “a 3D illustrator who loves cats.” José creates awesome sculptures and masks using paper, styrofoam, wireform, and paperclay. His creations are beautiful, playful, and incredibly detailed. We wish we could go out into the woods to play with them too.
“Through layers of paper and shades of color, Suris produces extremely detailed shapes with incredible texture that gives each form a lifelike presence. The wide range of final products includes some pieces that are fully sculpted creatures, others that are simple masks, and still others that are bodiless heads which Suris mounts and hangs on display just like a taxidermist might. For Suris, it seems that anything and everything sparks the creative process, including internet videos, cartoons, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Pokémon’s Eevee, friends’ plays, and stories that the artist hears in everyday life.”

“In no way limited to shadows, the the artists career which spans nearly 50 years (most of what you see above was created in the 1980s) has also involved ceramics, paint, and photography… You can see 38 light sculptures on his blog and read a bit more over on Alafoto.”
